Black Diamond Boots: Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boot
How awesome are the Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boots? Oh, let me count the ways. That’s right, poetry reference. But hey, given the way the different aspects of these boots work together in perfect harmony, why not?
Black Diamond’s goal in designing these boots was two-fold: Maximum Comfort, and Accurate Fit. They accomplished this through the many features they included. For starters: A larger, naturally shaped steel toe cap allows for complete freedom of toe movement. And the heel is anatomically tapered to hold your feet snugly and comfortably in place, eliminating heel slippage. Waterproof rubber assures your feet will stay dry so you can keep your focus on something more important than your boots, like fighting fires.
Black Diamond’s Comfort Fit System utilizes an Ortholite footbed that is breathable, long-lasting, and durable. Under the footbed is a high-density polyurethane midsole which absorbs energy and provides cushioning.
Of course, comfort and fit doesn’t matter much without safety. But with Black Diamond, that’s a given. These 9451 Rubber Firefighting Boots meet or exceed three different standards. Impressive. They include: the NFPA 2007 Edition Standard for structural fire fighting, the ANSI 1991 Standard for personal protective footwear.
Here’s why: the Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Rubber Firefighter Boot feature a Kevlar/Nomex leg lining. Yes, that’s Kevlar, the thing they make bullet-proof vests out of. They also have a 3.5 mm heavy corrugated roll tibia protector, a double-ridged steel shank, a stainless steel PR plate, and a steel toe. The toe lining is .76 mm net lining calendar coated, and the insulation is 4.8 mm open cell foam. Stitched-down linings ensure no liner pull-out. The pull-on loops are coated with rubber, for better durability.
There’s not much time to think about what your boots need to do when you’re in the midst of fighting a fire. You need to be focused on, you know, fighting the fire. The Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boots need to do their job, so you can do yours. So take a moment today and think about it. Your feet will thank you.

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
